    I couldn't wait to move back to the country where I could raise chickens. I ordered through an Horse Illustrated magazine from Murray McMurray Hatchery back when I was 14, but now I'm all grown up, physically anyways, and last night ordered 16 chicks from Cackle Hatchery where I want them to arrive sometime within a week. Cackle's online delivery system is not set in stone and I am to receive an email from Cackle within 10 days. In my opinion, that's NOT acceptable for a business to letcha guess when you'll be getting your email for a time to wait for the delivery of your baby little chicks, BUT it's ALL WORTH IT. Sorry for caps, it was the 14 year old in me< excitement. Anyways, I am new to BYC, and noticed already that I love this "at your fingertips" wealth of advice from all of you. I ordered Favs, NJWG, and I forget what else, but I will look it up and let you'all know when I get them, if I don't forget to post. I mean, I'll definitely post but later on, unless I don't forget and letcha know when I get them.. Ok Night all...

    Hello Hagerman.

    I'm confused. Your'e not still 14, are you?

    Cackle is a good place.

    Just welcome to the group, and we'll talk about
    chickens now and then on this site.

    How's that?

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
